This lecture is a very basic introduction to measurement and concept formation. It covers the following topics: theoretical constructs; translation of constructs into indicators or variables; nominal, ordinal, continuous and ratio measures; measurement techniques; measurement reliabiity and validity; debates in the measurement literature; and a brief introdution at the end to graph-based or multi-dimensional measurement.

The lecture was aimed at first year IR students with no background or interest in quantitative methods, although it is likely suitable with minor modifications for undergraduate and intro graduate political science students.  I have some notes available in the notes section, although these are not complete.
